This is an excuse for why our meetings are not more diverse. Mostly I hear this as something “other people think,” not the person speaking.
All I can say is that unprogrammed Quaker worship speaks to my condition. Or rather, unprogrammed Quaker worship allows God to speak to me. Or maybe it’s that Quaker worship assists me to hear God speaking to me.
However you want to phrase this, the real problem is that most people in low income or ethnic minorities haven’t heard of unprogrammed Quaker worship. Oh, kind of like the majority, huh?
Who was it that said that the real problem isn’t that Christianity has been tried and failed, but that Christianity has been found difficult and therefore not tried? Unprogrammed worship can be like that too.
